“Although the national inquiry released its final report earlier this week, our work is just beginning. I encourage all Manitoba residents to learn more about the issues by reading the report and its Calls for Justice,” said Grand Chief Garrison Settee.
“We are all part of the solution and each one of us is responsible to play a part in implementing the Calls for Justice contained in the National Inquiry’s final report.”
